I was looking at a recent post on this blog and realized that today is August 15th (8-15). I think that's pretty awesome in the LOST sense of things. I do hope they explain those numbers in LOST season 6. What does 4 8 15 16 23 42 mean anyway? What about the total of 108?

With the title given to the first episode, will the plane land in LA on September 22, 2004? Will there be a course correction, in which the that died on the island will die in the US, Final Destination style? Could this lead to the so called "Zombie Season" of the Official LOST podcast. =)
What are you thoughts?
What does "LA X" mean for the LOST universe? Will the flight 815 land in LA? What will happen? What did those commericals mean at Comic Con? Why was Dominic Monaghan there?

As the castaways of Oceanic 815 celebrated the 100th episode of “Lost,” what did we viewers receive as party favors? Another episode in which the big reveal is that a supporting character is secretly the child of two other supporting characters. (Will we next learn that Ben is the son of the smoke monster and the four-toed statue?) And another episode in which the plot increments could be measured only at the sub-atomic level.

J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof how could you go wrong?
As Paramount Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to its May 8 release, Star Trek, and has hired Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof to write the screenplay.
Variety says J.J. Abrams, who directed and produced the new film, is on board to produce the follow-up alongside his Bad Robot partner Bryan Burk. No decision has been made yet on whether Abrams will direct the sequel.

''HE'S OUR YOU.'' HUH?
''He's Our You'' is the title of tonight's Lost episode. What does it mean? As I write these words on Monday morning, I can honestly tell you that I don't know. If I had to guess, I would say that the episode will forge a connection between one of the castaways and someone from the Island's Dharma Initiative past. My FOIL (Fellow Obsessive In Lost) Dan Snierson and I get a little more specific with the speculation in the new episode of Totally Lost, which you will find at the conclusion of this column. (Unless we're not totally done with it, in which case you should come back later in the day for it.) Hint: ''Is it safe?''

''The world is all that is encased here; life, death, people, the allies, and everything else that surrounds us. The world is incomprehensible. We won't ever understand it; we won't ever unravel its secrets. Thus we must treat it as it is, a sheer mystery!'' — Carlos Castaneda
We are mysteries unto ourselves. Are killers born or made? Are we born evil or do we become evil? Are we products of nature or nurture? ''He's Our You,'' the tenth episode of Lost's rapidly dwindling fifth season, was a brain-melting thriller filled with deep, dark thoughts, with none bigger than this: Has Sayid changed Lost history by popping a cap in Young Ben in the Dharma Initiative past? It's the old ''If you could go back and kill Hitler, would you and could you?'' conceit, and the show winked at it when Sayid dropped the ''genocide'' bomb in describing his former employer's wickedness. However, I'm guessing that Sayid — new and improved with drug-induced pseudo-enlightenment — didn't succeed in realizing his new life's purpose, at least not yet. Shooting Ben didn't immediately cause reality to blink away, so we are left to wonder: Did the paradox-averse Overmind which regulates the course of events on the Island direct Sayid's bullet to avoid Ben's major organs? (Yo, Double-O Jarrah: Aim for the freakin' head!) Or is Young Ben simply not dead yet? You know where this is going. Next episode: ''Paging Dr. Shephard! Paging Dr. Shephard! Yet another life-saving/cosmos-preserving surgery on your arch-nemesis is waiting for you in Operating Room 306!''

Young Ben Linus was shot by Sayid on tonight’s LOST which was awesome, thanks for trying for Sayid. However, I don’t see how the island would allow Ben to die since it wouldn’t let Michael die until he fulfilled his purpose.
That’s all for now,

Tonight on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, their opening sketch was about flashbacks. Jimmy did the tradition rubbing your chin, harp music and wavy lines style flashback. An “audience member” was a flashback master and he did a LOST style flashback to earlier that afternoon.
Then Jimmy asks him to do a flashforward if he’s such master. The flashback master says that’s impossible, but Jimmy flashes to the future and they have a Back to the Future moment when the future version of the “audience members” tells Jimmy he can’t allow Obama’s daughter to become president.
It was not a very funny sketch, and the flashbacks and flash forwards were kind of lame, but it was cool that they were referencing LOST.

Jeff Jensen’s latest post article about last night’s LOST episode.
Daniel Faraday wasn't seen during the 1977 portion of the episode. What happened to him? Will we finally see -- or learn more about -- the mythic founders of the Dharma Initiative, Gerald and Karen DeGroot? And then there's this: The orientation film in the Hatch was dated 1980. I now have to wonder: Did Marvin Candle and company shoot that film knowing from the time traveling castaways what was going to happen in the future?

“The record is spinning again. We’re just not on the song we want to be on.”
Well, you guys certainly had a lot to say about last week’s episode. There were 143 comments on my original blog post, and 34 on a follow-up I did about part of one scene.
This week’s episode gives us a bridge between 2005 and 2008 (or 1974 and 1977...) and there’s a LOT of food for thought in it. This one will become extremely important in episodes to come, just for what has been established.

It had to happen sooner or later. DocArzt and Friends is ambling into the LOST podcasting scene - better late than never? That remains to be seen.
In our inaugural episode, Koobie and I take a look at LaFleur - an episode we both declare one of LOST’s better character pieces to date. We expose the Easter Egg hidden in the title (with the help of a friend), and discuss the ups and downs of shipping in the wake of Suliet.
If you have a theory, a news item, a spoiler, or an observation that you’d like to make it into the next episode, leave us a voicemail on Skype at docarztandfriends, or call us at (619) 618-0262. Remember, the recordings could be used on the air, as is.
Since we are late to the game, next weeks episode will be a retrospective of LOST season 5 so far. Until then, namaste.

Namaste, y'all! Wednesday's episode of LOST continues the story of what happened to those remaining on the island, ping-ponging between the moment when Locke left the island and the moments leading up to the arrival of Ajira Airways Flight 316. We learn what happened when Locke turned the frozen donkey wheel, what the Dharma Initiative was like in the 1970s and what the heck LaFleur is.
We briefly recap the disappearing wishing well situation, with Sawyer still hanging on to the rope that ends in solid earth after the flash.
So when are we now? "I'd say way before [the well was built]," snarks Miles, and they all look up to see an ancient-looking, gargantuan statue off in the distance. It has longish hair, pointy ears and a brush cut on top. It's wearing a toga. We're meant to believe that this is what the four-toed statue fragment comes from, but it begs the question: Does Jin remember seeing it before?
Posted by Art with Jimmy at 3/05/2009 09:46:00 PM
The Four Toed Statue from this weeks episode of LOST looks like the statue of Ramses II that was in the ancient capital of Egypt Memphis. The body, clothing, arms and hands look very similar. The statue on LOST is holding an Ankh in each hand. You can click on the thumbnail on the right to see a larger version of that picture.
The previous post was about the Ankh, but it is basically a symbol of life.
The island offers life.
Eternal Life perhaps: Richard Alpert
Resurrected Life: John Locke
Healing: John & Rose and probably others
Posted by Art with Jimmy at 3/05/2009 09:26:00 PM
We saw the Ankh a couple of times in the latest episode of LOST. We saw that Paul had one and Amy kept it after his death, which later caused a fight between her and Horace. My next post will be about the other time we saw the Ankh (The Four Toed Statue). The rest of this post is a quote from another source that helps explains what the Ankh is.
The Ankh was, for the ancient Egyptians, the symbol (the actual Hieroglyphic sign) of life but it is an enduring icon that remains with us even today as a Christian cross. It is one of the most potent symbols represented in Egyptian art, often forming a part of decorative motifs.
The ankh seems at least to be an evolved form of, or associated with the Egyptian glyph for magical protection, sa. However, what the sign itself represents is often disputed. For example, Sir Alan Gardiner thought that it showed a sandal strap with the loop at the top forming the strap, but if so, the symbolism is obscure and so his theory has found little real favor early on. However, this interpretation seems to have received some acceptance among modern writers. It would seem that the ancient Egyptians called that part of the sandal 'nkh (exact pronunciation unknown). Because this word was composed of the same consonants as the word "life", the sign to represent that particular part of the sandal, was also used to write the word "life".

The Left Behinders, led by Sawyer, wind up finding their place with the Dharma Initiative folks...at least until they have their big reunion with some old friends
If Jack is the Man of Science, and if John Locke is the Man of Faith, then I nominate Sawyer as Man of Heart. To hell with it: Can we just say he's the effin' man?!' Because in last night's Lost, he certainly was all that, plus a bag of Dharma chips. The kind of dude all the boys want to be; the kind of hunk that all the girls wanna get with — provided they're cool with his new slightly shorn and less stubbled look. Stepping up as leader, savior, and super-cool boyfriend — and succeeding wildly at all three — Sawyer found himself born again in the Dharma Initiative past. He seemed perfectly at home, perfectly at ease, perfectly self-realized within the confines of the trippy-hippy Utopian commune. Making the ex-con the head of Dharma security? Genius. Coupling him with fertility doc-turned-motor pool mechanic Juliet? Totally worked for me. Kudos to Josh Holloway and Elizabeth Mitchell for selling us on the best romance Lost has ever given us. Consider my membership in the Skater/SawKate/Kateyer 'shipper club resigned, chopper kiss be damned. But bliss is fleeting on Lost, and so, after Sawyer told Dharma's troubled uber-nerd Horace Goodspeed that he could barely remember the face of the girl that got away, we got the moment the entire season had been setting us up for. As Sawyer locked eyes with his former (?) fugitive dreamgirl, newly returned to the Island, I heard Sawyer's internal monologue say ''Oh, yeah. I, like, totally love you. Er, I mean, loved you. I mean: Crap!'' If they gave Emmy nominations for meaningful gazes, Holloway should start ironing his tuxedo T-shirt and best ripped jeans, because he'd be going to the ceremony.

LOST is an important part of my life. Each week, I look forward to my LOST parties on Wednesday nights. I can’t wait to hear the LOST Podcast with Jay and Jack to see what they thought about the show, and what the listeners thought as well. I also check out whatever the Official LOST Podcast/Video Podcast is released each Thursday. I’m glad Jay and Jack have a Monday show, because I don’t really listen to other podcasts. I sometimes check out the Transmission.
I will miss LOST even more this year, due to the LOST parties. I think we’ll have to have some kind of LOST rewatch parties during the long wait for season 6.
Anyway, my question is how much of your time is devoted to LOST during the season? Is it just the 1 hour of TV time/DVR time? Do you watch previews and clips? Do you read the blogs?
I loved Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live, so I’ve been meaning to watch 30 Rock for a while. I started watching season 1 several weeks ago and finally started watching the rest today. One of the episode I watched “The Source Awards.” This episode included two special guest stars: L.L. Cool J and Wayne Brady. Wayne Brady played “Tracy Jordan’s” new business manager. He and Liz went on a couple of dates. On the first dates, she asks him “What do you think about this season of LOST?”, and Wayne Brady tells Liz that he doesn’t own a TV. Anyway, I like it when other shows make reference to LOST. I’ve posted about Chuck previously, and Dwight on The Office has mentioned LOST several times and I think that’s cool.

Who has just moved up to the number one spot on the all-time "Most Evil T.V. Bad Guys" list? Ben. Just when we felt like we could trust him and actually feel for him, he goes and stabs (strangles) the back of John Locke. Now I have personally met and talked to Michael Emerson on many occasions and I will say he is one of the nicest, most gracious, and funniest people I have ever met. But I seriously think I hate Benjamin Linus. If he actually succeeded in killing Penny, I may have to kill him myself. Especially since John Locke easily believes that conniver every time.
Anyone that knows me knows that I love John Locke. I am a John Locke fan and his character is what drew me into the show. I think the wheelchair scene in "Walkabout" was most people's "I love this show" moment. Not only was that the moment that got me hooked, it was the moment that made Locke the character I felt for most. It made me want to root for him the most. Even Locke's musical themes are my favorites in the show. He is my lost-away soul mate. That being said, Locke needs to seriously wise up. I swear he better kick some serious Ben butt next week and in the weeks to come. I mean how many times do you need to be killed by someone? Fool you once shame on you (being shot in the gut in "Man Behind the Curtain") but fool you twice shame on you, Mr. Locke. Enact some bald man vengeance on Ben please. I won't hold it against you, I promise.

John Locke went tilting at windmills last night, and paid the price. The maybe-delusional/maybe-not/probably-both knight errant of Lost screwed on his Don Quixote and went on his greatest quest yet: convincing the world-weary, spiritually-defeated Oceanic 6 that they were special; that they were meant for greater adventures and grander purposes; that they belonged back on the Island. Alas, just as ''the knight of the sad countenance'' of Cervantes' mock-heroic epic was met wherever he went with derision and much physical punishment, Locke, too, was greeted with heaps of scorn and physical battery. Still, it was Locke who laughed last. In the wake of a journey that tested his faith and left him for dead, the Holy Fool found himself born again on the sandy shores of his heavenly home — or at least, just across the water from it, over on Hydra Island, the Maui-sequel Purgatory which orbits the Paradise-or-Inferno(?) riddle of the (Big) Island. Continuing the season's time loop theme (figurative and literal), Locke celebrated by doing what he did the first time around — biting into a juicy mango and telling a complete stranger his big secret, which this time around was this: I used to be dead. Now I am alive. Fancy that.
FLASH FOWARD TO THE END OF THE ARTICLE
DESTINATION NO. 6: THIS PLACE IS DEATH/BEN The episode's best scene — and one of the best scenes the series has ever given us. It began with Locke in his skuzzy hotel room writing his Jack-addressed suicide note/bitter parting shot. Locke had been totally destroyed by going 0 for 6 on his back-to-the-Island recruitment drive. Each encounter had chipped away at his faith and self-esteem, so much so that by the end, you got the sense that Locke saw himself the way everyone else saw him. Which is exactly what happens in Don Quixote, too...oh, but another time.
And so, Locke made himself a noose out of an extension cord and was on the verge of killing himself when Ben barged in. Presented with the greatest challenge in his career as cajoler, manipulator, and seducer, the great snake of Lost rose to the occasion as he coaxed Locke off the ledge. ''You have no idea how important you are,'' he said. ''You've got too much work to do.'' Of course, our rooting interest here was pretty complicated, in a marvelously ironic way. After all, we knew that Locke actually needed to die to fulfill his Island-saving destiny. But Ben succeeded, and managed to talk Locke off his cross...and then he went and made good on Hurley's subliminal foreshadowing and sphinxed him to death with the extension cord. But why? Why save him, then brutally kill him? Does the Island's resurrection power not work on suicides? Was Ben actually doing Locke a favor by murdering him, i.e., helping him fulfill the requirement of dying in such a way that wouldn't deny him a shot at living again in paradise? Hard to say. Ben's decision seemed to be tied to two bits of news, which seemed to come as complete surprises: (1) The revelation that Jin was alive; and even more so (2) That Locke needed to seek out Eloise Hawking for help in getting back to the Island. The words ''Eloise Hawking'' seemed to function almost like a psychotic trigger, and Ben seemed to snap, either out of reflex or some quick realization that he had no choice: He had to kill Locke; he could not allow him to meet Ms. Hawking. I was struck by Ben's melancholy goodbye: ''I'll miss you, John. I really will.'' Are we really to believe that Ben had no idea Locke would live again once he was back on the Island? Or might there have been more nuance in Ben's salutation. Maybe the Resurrected Locke is profoundly different than the Old Locke; perhaps Ben was grieving the loss of the latter.
One last thought about Ben: Very Tony Soprano, didn't you think?
What did you think of Ben's bait-and-switch? How do you think he feels about Ms. Hawking? Who's the bigger rogue: Widmore or Ben? Do you think Born Again Locke is any different from Old Island Locke? Heck: Do you even think he's born again? Could be some Christian Shephard-esque poltergeist?

You read that right. We have multiple teases about tonight's new Lost. Most of them are hiding within (shameless plug alert!) the new installment of Totally Lost, the web series devoted to the crazy talk, over-thinking, passionate feelings, and general fun-time tomfoolery that Lost inspires in myself and Dan Snierson. You can find the show (which includes a very special guest ''appearance'' from Lost exec producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof via the modern magic of electromagnetic bobble-headed talismans) at the very end of this column. If you simply can't wait, I offer below, tease no. 1:
Posted by Art with Jimmy at 2/26/2009 09:28:00 PM
“...there’s a war coming, John. And if you’re not back on the island when that happens, the wrong side is going to win.”
The War: Widmore vs. Ben?
So who's the good guy and who's the bad guy? Are there clear sides? Are they both bad?
I loved the scene with Widmore sitting by John's hospital bed. Why did John Locke make such a huge impact on Widmore when he was 17? He was hostile to Locke, and John talked only to Alpert. Presumably the flash happened, Locke disappeared, and Widmore was as gobsmacked as the rest of them. If he was really on the island for 30 years as he says he was, then Alpert, who would have been tracking Locke’s life, might have been passing on information to him and he’d been following John’s life as closely as Alpert had been.

Malcolm David Kelley wants closure.
Just like the rest of us, MDK is a hard-core Lost fan, which means he is dying to know more about what makes Walt so "special," and he even has some ideas about where Walt might fit in season six. We just spoke to MDK exclusively, and he shared his pitch for Walt's future and what he knows about the kid's superpowers.
Read on for the inside track about the future of WAAALT!
After last night's brief but tantalizing return engagement, Malcolm is ready and willing to go another round with Lost. "I would like to come back for a long stretch, but it’s not up to me. It’s up to the writers."
Posted by Art with Jimmy at 2/26/2009 09:03:00 PM
Ben has obviously done a lot of bad things, but he's always tried to tell us that he is one of the good guys. For some reason, I want to believe him.
Charles Widmore has been a jerk to Desmond, killed another other back in 1954 and most importantly sent a team of mercenaries to the island with guns and C4. Both seem like bad guys.
The latest episode of LOST makes me want to change my mind to "Ben really is the bad guy, and Widmore really is the good guy." I guess we shall have to wait and see.
What do you think?

Trailer for the new movie Knowing.
Numbers from 50 years ago predict major worlds events and the future. LOST has important numbers. We've seen event take place on the island from 50 years before the crash of Oceanic 815. LOST includes time travel, and from the what we've seen from last summer's video of Pierre Change with Daniel Faraday running the video camera our LOST friends are going to try and change the future.
To quote Desmond, Nicolas Cage is "saving the world brotha!" What happens when the numbers run out? I doubt Nic will find a fail safe key. Oh yeah, there's also a plane crash in the trailer.

Comic book writer turned occasional “Lost” maestro Brian K. Vaughan apparently exists within the hit series’ universe now. The multi-talented comic book all-star behind the Vertigo series “Y: The Last Man” and “Ex Machina” has held such titles as producer, writer and executive story editor over the last few seasons, but this week, Hugo’s airport reading habits appear to have placed him firmly on the inside of the “Lost” universe.
On last night’s episode, titled “316,” Hugo was caught clearly reading a Spanish-language edition of “Y: The Last Man, Vol. 3: One Small Step” – or “Y, El Último Hombre” as it appeared on screen.
The comic book cameo was certainly a wink at Vaughan’s comic book fanbase, who cheered him on when he joined fellow comics scribe Jeph Loeb over at the “Lost” office for the show’s third season. But the plot of that particular volume of “Y” is worth keeping in mind, too.

LOST Season 5 Episode 6 was entitled "316." The flight that took the Oceanic 5 + Ben and Frank back to the island was Ajira Airways Flight 316.
The obvious Biblical reference is John 3:16 probably the most famous Bible verse.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
This verse is one of the summaries of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through Christ's atoning death on the cross, people have the opportunity to have their sins forgiven and have eternal life. Here's a more in depth look at the gospel.
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
I John 5:11-12
And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

Welcome to Ajira Airways - Have a Nice Flight! Iain Lee, Paul Terry and Geeky Tom are back this week to discuss another amazing episode of Lost: "316"

EW: Lost has always walked this balance between being a character-driven survival show that everyone can appreciate and being a sci-fi/fantasy show best appreciated by fans of that genre. This season, you’ve really pushed the sci-fi/fantasy angle. Does this approach come with risk?
CARLTON CUSE (left): We’re trying to be bold. We realized we were going to shed some viewers by being more overtly [sci-fi] this season perhaps, but that we would reward the viewers who have stuck around for the turn in the show with some really good and interesting storytelling.
DAMON LINDELOF (right): But the show has gotten to that point now where it had to let its freak flag fly. It kind of needed to begin to announce, “You wanna know what the island is? You wanna know why these people were brought to the island? You wanna know what their purpose in being brought there is? It might be a little weirder than you would’ve hoped.” In addition, there’s always been this risk of what happens when you start giving people answers. You know, once you start telling people who the last Cyclon is, they all start whining about it. Now, the one thing that we didn’t ever want to do was not give our audience the answers. At the same time, it was really important to us this significant part of our show — the history of The Island — through the first-person perspective of characters that the audience cares about. Hence, time travel. And that’s what informed our storytelling this year. We hope that once you’ve sort of swallowed the bitter pill of skipping through time, you’ll really like it.

As many of you know, I live on Oahu, which is the same island that LOST is filmed on. All the actors are here… somewhere. I attended the Season 2 premiere at Sunset on the Beach. I’ve met Matthew Fox and got his autograph. Sadly, I haven’t spotted anyone else all these years.
One of the most intriguing parts of the show for me has been the numbers. We haven’t seen them appear on the show in quite some time, so I’m hoping with tonight’s episode with Faraday’s mom we’ll see them come back into play.
I wasn’t all that happy with the right side. I was trying to go for some orchids for The Orchid, but that didn’t really look how I wanted. Oh well.

''I felt just the same,'' said Edmund in a breathless voice. ''As if I were being dragged along. A most frightful pulling — ugh! It's beginning again!... All catch hands and keep together! This is magic — I can tell by the feeling. Quick!''
Why the road back to the Island begins with ''316''
Lost producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have often cited The Chronicles of Narnia, C.S. Lewis' beloved fantasy series, as a major creative touchstone for their own fantastical epic. (The proof: Charlotte Staples Lewis = Clive Staples Lewis). The above citation comes from Prince Caspian, Lewis' sequel to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, in which the four Pevensie siblings return to the enchanted realm of Narnia...many, many years in the future, and via a mysterious island dotted with crumbling ruins, no less. And while Edmund's terrified alarm conjures images of Smokey dragging Montand the Frenchie into the Temple's basement (Rip! Splooge! Awesome!), young Master Ed here is actually describing the sensation of being abruptly yanked back to fantasyland. In fact, his words evoke for me the sound effect of Lost's time flashes. Listen as you watch the following clip from ''The Little Prince'': Doesn't it sound like the castaways are literally being stretched from one point in time to another? (Feel free to zip to the 1:39 mark to get to the point.)

They're back. Back where they belong. Back where we want them to be. Nearly 21 months after Jack first bellowed ''We have to go back!'', the Oceanic 6 (minus Aaron, and don't ask why, or else Kate won't kiss you) finally undertook the perilous journey back to the place they never should have left — back to The Island, back to their ''mythic estate,'' to borrow a phrase from James Joyce's Ulysses, which last night's episode had the audacity to namedrop. For now, we only know of three who successfully fell to Earth — all the way to The Island's Dharma Initiative past, no less. There's Jack, blinking awake as he did in Lost's very first episode, this time looking not hopelessly lost, but gloriously born again. There's Kate, whose motivations for making the return trip were deliberately kept from us (all the better for a future flashback episode, my dears). And there's Hurley, whose carry-on baggage included a new comic book (one of my all time favorites, Y: The Last Man, written by Brian K. Vaughan, who also happens to be Lost producer) and a guitar case — a token of Charlie, required to complete the set of symbolic talismans needed to conjure some portal-opening magic. (I think.)

Well, we now know how the Oceanic 6 got back to the island, but because this is Lost and not Two and a Half Men, what appears to be the burning question is instantly supplanted by a more complicated one: Why did they go back? While Jack and Sun were already on board with Ben's plan to return, all of a sudden Kate, Sayid and Hurley were all queuing up at the Ajira Airways gate, and we have no idea why. It opens up possibilities in the already-twisty narrative that give us much to anticipate about future episodes.
I won't dwell on my futile Googling for a deeper knowledge of the title of this episode: "316." Suffice it to say that not only is it the area code of Wichita, Kansas, and the year that Constantine attempted to end the schism between the Roman Catholic and Donatist churches (whatever that means), it is also the Ajira flight number... and the number of a very telling Biblical passage, that being John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." We'll get to see who Lost's resident Jesus figure is in good time, but in the meantime, Mrs. Hawking has something to tell the Oceanic 6 — and the audience.Full Article: Lost Episode Recap: "316" - TV Show Recaps | TVGuide.com

I heard Albert Mohler mention the philosopher John Locke on his radio program. I thought I'd look up the article and post it here, since it's from the "real" John Locke.
Home schooling is hardly foreign to the American experience. John Locke’s advice to parents in colonial America was to educate their children at home. He could not imagine “what qualities are ordinarily to be got from...a troop of playfellows [at school]…usually assembled together from parents of all kinds.” Even if the teacher’s industry and skill “be ever so great, it can[not]…be expected that he should instruct them successfully in anything but their books.”

Last week I asked the question, "Where are we going?" It only took an episode to get that answer. Last night's "eye opening" parallel to the "Pilot" episode gave us so much information. At the same time, we also got some solid new mysteries and new characters that seem to set up the rest of the series.
We started out with the green eye of Jack Shephard in the middle of the jungle. At first glance, one would guess that this is a flashback to the series' pilot. Many have theorized that this scene will also be the last scene in "Lost." Upon closer look, we see that this is not in fact the aftermath of the crash of Oceanic Flight 815, but in fact the crash (was it a crash?) of Ajira Airlines Flight 316 - "316" being the title of last night's episode. The Bible verse John 3:16 is considered to be a summary of some of the most central doctrines of Christianity and is one of the most widely quoted verses in the world (yeah, I'm talking to you In 'N Out Burger!) The passage reads, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." And in his note to Jack, that other John simply wrote, "I wish you had believed me."

Damon and Carlton have decided to show us episode 7 "316" before we see episode 6 "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham." This is the second time that the producers have filmed episodes and later decided that it would make more sense to air them out of the original order.

Canton-Rainier Carpet Cleaning was the name on the van that Ben was driving around. "Canton-Rainier" is an anagram for "reincarnation." For more LOST fun, you can visit: http://wordsmith.org/anagram/ to see if any of the names, places, etc are anagrams.

I also watched "Dave" today in which Hurley for the first time sees and interacts with people that are not there. More and more connections with the future of LOST.
I also watched "The Lockdown" from season two. Which shows several interesting things, like the blast door map, but my question after watching this episode is: "Would Jeremy Bentham have Helen on his lists of visits to make off island?"

Was that from the past? Hurley jokes around about how it could be "coming from any time," but seeing how much of season 2 points to season 5 could this be an early reference to the time travel phenomenon on LOST.

Namaste! Wednesday's episode of Lost, titled "The Little Prince," proved to be a doozy in terms of at least one character's presumed fate! We learned how Kate became Aaron's mommy, how Ben's sinister (?) hand appears to be behind everything, why everyone's noses are bleeding and who might not be so dead after all.
Wikipedia tells me that the French novel from which this episode takes its name is about a prince who is stranded in a desert, but eventually visits six planets, each inhabited by a different single character. See if any of these characterizations sound familiar: The King; The Conceited Man; The Drunkard/Tippler; The Businessman; The Lamplighter; and The Geographer. I'm not sure how any of this dovetails with the Lost funhouse just yet, but, as usual, I am in awe of the producers' level of detail, and I am paying close attention.
Let's assume, for the moment, that the Little Prince in question is Aaron. Wednesday's episode was, in part, the story of how Aaron was separated from Claire, his birth mother, and became Kate's "son." He also became a pawn in Ben's gambit to get the Oceanic 6 to agree to return to the island.

Today I was thinking about LOST and I called Jay and Jack with this theory. We know that Mrs. Hawkins and Daniel know a lot about time travel and such. Daniel told Desmond that the rules do not apply to him. Well, this is where my brain started working. LOST is all about some daddy issues. Who is Desmond's dad? What if his father is..... JACOB?

SPOILER ALERT: The following news story contains spoilers from this week's episode of Lost.
Rivaling Locke's reaction upon running into a twentysomething Charles Widmore on the island, Lost's Jin is in the midst of a double-take of his own, having been fished out of the drink, alive, by a young Danielle Rousseau. Asked to weigh on his character's twist-filled reintroduction, Daniel Dae Kim tells TVGuide.com, "I was happy with the way they did that, for sure!"
Jin now is left to piece together for himself what — and when — is going on here. Is his English good enough to communicate with his rescuers and fashion some answers? "That is a very interesting question," says Kim. "Watching Jin's journey with English over the next few episodes will be ... very interesting."

LOST On Island
Charlotte is out cold for a while. Daniel and Juliet try to help her. She wakes up and for a minutes doesn't remember Daniel. He think that her symptoms are so bad because of prolonged exposure to the island before the time jumping. John tells Sawyer that they need to go to the Orchid to try and save the island and he wants to attempt to leave the island like Ben did. He tells Sawyer that the Oceanic 6 are alive. They set out for the beach to the Zodiac boat to sail to the part of the island where the Orchid is, in half the time.
It's night and as they are trekking we see a light shinning in the sky, the night Boone died and John was pounding on the hatch. John says to avoid that and won't tell when they are when Daniel asks. They hear screams and Sawyer goes ahead and sees Kate delivering Claire's baby. Myles tells Daniel that his nose has starting bleeding. Then flash happens and it's day and they head toward the beach again. When they get their it's in the future after the freighter explosion, because the camp is back but destroyed. They find a couple of old school looking canoes. Like the ones at the beginning of season 3 with Carl. Their is an Ajira Airways bottle in their. Which means that's the Oceanic Six's canoe as far as I know from the Ajira Airways web stuff.
They take off in the canoe for the other part of the island. I was wondering what would happen if a flash happens when their in the water, and we find out. however, before that the other canoe is chasing them and someone is shooting at them. They try to paddle away and then Juliet shoots someone on the other canoe. They people are black out like the tail section people at the beginning of season 2. Just as it seems things are there worst a flash happens and Sawyer says "Thank you Lord."
Then flash into a storm with the canoe and paddles and try to go to land. They get to a beach. Sawyer and Juliet share a moment and her nose starts bleeding. Charlotte stumbles onto some wreckage. A plane crash, no a boat. Then we see life raft kind of Oceanic Six type, but they're speaking French. They see someone laying face down on a board, and pull them on board and it's Jin! They get to land the next morning and a woman talks with Jin when he wakes up. She can speak English, and it seems the rest can't. She gives Jin some water and then pulls off her jacket revealing a pregnant stomach. Who is it? Well she tells us straight forwardly, my name is Danielle Rousseau. Jin in shocked.
LOST Off Island
Kate is with Sun before she goes to meet the lawyers. Sun is watching Aaron. The lawyer tells Kate that she has to give the blood, she's in no place to make demands, etc. She wants to know if the person doing with will meet with her if she gives the blood. The lawyer tells her that he is meeting with the client later in the day and he will ask even though the answer will be no. Kate is on stake out duty waiting for the lawyer to go to his meeting.
Jack is helping Sayid in the hospital and a hospital official comes in and asks him what he's doing there since he's on suspension for substance abuse. Hurley calls Jack from prison and tells him to tell Sayid that he did what he said and hung up. Ben shows up and asks how Sayid is doing. Sayid is attacked by one of Ben's goons apparently who has Kate's address in his pocket. Sayid shoots to tranquilizers into him. So I guess he's alive. Then Ben, Jack and Sayid head out. Jack is worried about Kate because of the address. Sayid drives Ben's van with or without John?
Jack talks with Kate and goes to her. She is on stake out duty and the lawyer comes out and they follow him to a hotel where Claire's mom is. She is not the one trying to take Aaron. Jack tells Kate to call Sun and tell her to meet them at the Longbeach pier.
Sayid and Ben pull into a garage and the same lawyer comes to meet with Ben and says that Hurley will be free in the morning.
When the group meet up at the pier, Kate does like Ben being there and he admits that he's the one asking for the blood. Sun shows up with her gun and apparently next week she'll point it at some people.

The Smartest Shows on Television Pictures, Lost Photos - Photo Gallery: The Smartest Shows on Television
Why It's Smart: What started as a simple desert-island drama has morphed into a dense, kaleidoscopic serial that really bakes your noodle. For every question the show answers, it raises five intriguing others. Why did Oceanic Flight 815 crash? We're really not sure, but it has something to do with electromagnetism, time travel, redemption, absent fathers, fertility issues, an abandoned nuclear warhead, and some guy named Jacob… so far. It's a wild ride.
How Smart Is It? Among the staggering number of books woven into the show's mythology are Homer's Odyssey, Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, and Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time.

Fans of LOST may be familiar with Sam Anderson as one-half of the island’s true love story between – Bernard Nadler and Rose Henderson (L. Scott Caldwell).
While Rose is sick and given only a short time to live – the island has allowed the couple (who were separated by the plane splitting into on different sides of the island) to finally get back together and SURPRISE – to discover – she is disease-free when on the island.
While this is one of LOST’s happier stories, Anderson gets a chance to go to the dark side with “The Snow Job,” this week’s episode of TNT’s new hit series LEVERAGE airing tonight at 10:00 p.m.
In the episode, Anderson plays a ruthless owner of a construction company who is unlawfully foreclosing on innocent families. Playing the baddie isn’t anything new to Anderson, who, coincidentally enough once worked with LEVERAGE’s co-star Christian Kane on Joss Whedon’s BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER spin-off ANGEL. Anderson was his boss Holland Manners at the evil law firm Wolfram and Hart – now the table’s are turned on LEVERAGE and the Anderson gives iF the exclusive scoop on his latest role.

I am finally getting back to trying to rewatch Season 2 and 3. I watched all of season 1 and the first 4 episodes of season 2 a couple of months ago. anyway, tonight I was watching the other 48 Days.
Season 2 seems to be very prominent in season 5, alot of things seem to make a little more sense going back to it after seeing season three, four and the initial part of season 5. In this episode, Ana Lucia's in charge of the Tail Section Survivors and finally she realizes that Godwin isn't a part of the survivors. She asked him "Where do you think they got it?" What you ask, the army knife. They found a U.S. Army knife on one of The Others. Well after seeing Jughead we know conclusively that the U.S. Army was once on the island in the 1950s and The Others eliminated that threat to the island. While eliminating the soliders, they stole their camp and clothes as well, including their gear. Guns, knifes, etc.
I think Season 2 is a major key to season 5!

Charlotte seems to be dying perhaps from the time travel. I think her parent's lives are in danger to to all of the time traveling. We've seen a lot of our people die and some of their people die. Locke killed an Other. Whidmore killed an Other because he was being held captive by the LOSTies.
They say you can't change the past/future on LOST, but I think it's pretty obvious that they are shaping events in the past with their interactions. I know Damon and Carlton have said that they aren't into multiple futures like Back to the Future.

This is a great article. A must read for any serious LOST fan. Some great insights on page 4.
In Lost, names mean something. So when the season premiere included a fleeting scene involving a new character who made a point of identifying himself, I began searching the Web for ''Dan Norton'' in hopes of unearthing a connection to Lost. But after a few weeks, the best I could do was find a comic artist named Dan Norton who has such a wide array of credits, one of them was bound to have something in common with a time-travel TV show with a blood-seeking lawyer. (Vampire By Night, perhaps?) I wasn't satisfied, so I kept digging, and just when I was about to quit, I stumbled upon a 1952 academic tome called Classical Myths in English Literature, co-authored by...Dan S. Norton. More than that, my Google search took me to one page in particular, and I was electrified by a sense of Eureka! discovery. It was like stumbling across a hidden hatch in the middle of the jungle and finding my purpose inside.

Here's the Latest from Doc Jensen
Many thanks to my colleague Adam B. Vary for taking on the Lost recap this week while I tend to other matters pertaining to our mutual obsession that will soon come to your attention. Adam mentioned I might have more to say about "Jughead" next week, but my utter enthusiasm for last night's episode prevents me from waiting that long. So some quick observations/theories.
"Jughead" rocked. Let me be clear and plain about this before cluttering your mind with my usual nonsense: I loved the episode. The pleasure it gave was visceral; it was a fun episode to feel your way through, from Desmond and his son beholding the London skyline at night to the in-passing revelation that Des and Pen had named their boy after the man who sacrificed his life so their relationship may live, Charlie. Killed me. The storytelling was strong and assured, and the story itself flowed in a surprising, unforced way. And has there been a funnier episode of Lost in recent memory? Not in a jokey way, but in an organic, character-derived sense—the kind of chuckles you get from clearly drawn characters and knowing them well. Faraday asking Miles if by chance the dead guys mentioned what year it was. Locke’s reaction to the Widmore reveal. Juliet and Alpert’s droll line readings. (Must be an Other thing, like Latin.) Sawyer to Faraday: “You told her?!” If you put a gun to my head and made me give you right here, right now, my top 10 list of all time fave Lost eps, I’m sure “Jughead” would be on it. Take the gun away, and I think it would still be there.My “Arrow” Theory. Adam mentioned this in his recap. Have you noticed the recurring arrow symbolism this season? Episode 1: Pierre Chang produces the orientation film for a Dharma station called “The Arrow.” Episode 2: The Left Behinders are attacked by flaming arrows. And now, Episode 3: Arrows everywhere, in the text (see: the Others’ archery brigade) and the subtext. A leaking or missing hydrogen bomb is known as a “Broken Arrow” event in military parlance. In physics, the “Arrow of Time” is the name of a body of theories pertaining to the nature of time; the term “broken arrow” is used to characterize an idea like time loops. Google “broken arrow” and you’ll get any number of movies, TV shows and songs about Native Americans… and wouldn’t you know, “Jughead” was a peek into the past of the Island’s indigenous peeps, the Others. But the coolest arrow connection comes via the Other cutie with the shot gun, British accent, and terse line readings: Ellie. Short for Eleanor, which is French for “the Other.” (Or so wikipedia tells me; I don’t speak it. Me stupid American.) On a whim, I combined “Ellie” and “Eleanor” and “Arrow,” and came back with an awesome connection: Ellie Arroway, the heroine of Carl Sagan’s novel Contact, which was adapted into the Jodie Foster film of the same name. I’m going to leave it to you to explore the significance, but Sagan’s story certainly resonates with Lost themes, and perhaps functions as a clue to wormhole theory.

This episode was Desmond-centric off island. Desmond is seen running frantically looking for a doctor in a flashback of Penny having a baby, whose name is Charlie! (Awe) Then we move to normal future time and Desmond is talking about a special island, the UK. Penny spoils the fun about the parts that Desmond was leaving out; like when he broke her heart. She says that her father is a very dangerous man.
3 freighter folk and 2 log carrying guys, and the log carrying guys die oh course. Charlotte is getting worse. Daniel is stepping being a leader. Myles sees a trip wire and these guys get blow up. How are people dying back in the 50s not affecting the future? Elli comes out of the jungle with all of her people and says something that it sounds like she's saying "you again?", but it seems that she was referring to the US army.
Desmond off island promises that this mission is a one day thing and that it will be earlier. Penny wants him to promise that he'll never go back to the island, and he basically says why would want to go back.
Daniel is the leader for real now, very smart in dealing with "The Others." Locke examines that gun and says that the old gun looks new. Juliet speaks Latin as do they, because they're others. The Others are taking the the freighter folks and Myles has the flash of the 4 US soldiers dying three with gun shots and 1 through radiation. They get the to MASH looking army camp, and Richard Alpert is their leader. Faraday works well with Richard, he plays the part of the US army.
Desmond can't find any info about Faraday, but his stuff is still in his old lab. Desmond talks to some weird guy after finding the ray, the maze and some other junk. The crazy janitor tells him to forget about Faraday and says something cryptic about something that Daniel did to a girl.
The freighter folk are still being held by the Others and they are discussing that they need to play along with the fact that the Others think that they are US Army people. Faraday convinces Alpert that he will not detonate the bomb, because he loves Charlotte.
Juliet, Sawyer and Locke are carrying their prisoners through the jungle. Jones snaps the guys neck that Juliet is talking to. Locke does not shot the guy, but Sawyer tries to shot him and misses. The others runs away.
Desmond is looking for Teresa Spencer, apparently the lady in the photo that the creepy janitor was talking. Desmond meets her sister and she lets him in when he mentions Faraday. The woman is apparently is jumping through time, but has not died and perhaps her sister is her constant. She is trapped, perhaps. Daniel left her in that state and Charles Whidmore has helped her ever since.
Faraday and Charlotte have a moment, because he's admitted his love for her. Richard says that the US army had set up camp and that they had to kill them, and that he was taking orders. The Other that got away runs into camp and Richard asks if he was followed, but he thinks that he couldn't be tracked by the old man especially since he doesn't know the island like he does.
Juliet and Locke have a little conversation about Richard Alpert, and how old he is. Locke leaves them behind to go meet with Alpert, while Sawyer and Juliet go to save Faraday.
Faraday is taken out by Elli to check on the bomb, which is hanging precariously and he finds a link. He talks to her and tells her that its dangerous and that they need to bury it in lead and cement. He does tell her that he is from the future. I think that's talking about Swan Station. We don't know where they buried it at this point.
Desmond goes to see Whidmore and confronts him about Faraday and his mother. Mrs. Hawkins is Daniel's mom it definitely seems. Whidmore tries to warn Desmond to stay away and hide.
John Locke comes into camp looking for Alpert, and says that "Jacob sent me." We find out that Jones is Whidmore, Charles Whidmore.
Desmond goes back to the boat with Penny and he lies to her, but she knows and they decide to go to LA
John tells Richard about who he is and that he meets Richard in later. Richard tells him that it is 1954 - May 20, 1956 is Locke's birthday and John tells him to go look him up. Locke heard the time shift noise, and everything disappears. It looks like Charlotte is getting worse and perhaps going to die soon. LOST
